Two Convicted for Ohio Vote Fraud, Media Leaves Out They're Democrats
Special prosecutor Kevin Baxter did not claim the actions affected the outcome of the election. Democratic Sen. John Kerry Kerry gained 17 votes and President Bush lost six in the county recount.The fact that Kerry gained 17 votes in the recount would not have been mentioned had these two not been Democrat Poll workers, the suspicion being that they fraudulently created Kerry's gain out of thin air. But surmising this point takes some thought and is not obvious on its surface. So, even the recitation of this point does not explain in a straightforward manner that these two women were Democrats. No, what we have here is another game of hide-the-Democrat from the readers. Another in a long list of stories that will seemingly never end. **Update- 12/21/07** I find that I was misinformed about Kathleen Dreamer's party affiliation. She is a Republican as can be found in this AP story. This is the first story I have seen that mentions the party affiliation specifically of Dreamer. An earlier story I saw misidentified both as Democrats.
